Musician's or Publisher's Notes
A native of Seville, Joaquin Turina won local success
before travelling to Madrid, where he met Manuel de Falla and
was further influenced by the prevailing currents of musical nationalism. The guitar formed part of that pattern, and
he wrote several pieces for it, including Fandanguillo, written in
1925. Full of instrumental techniques
such as pizzicato, harmonics and the particular guitar technique of tambor (a
drum effect obtained by striking the strings near the bridge), it manages to
compress into less than four minutes the essence of Spanish dance with the
dramatic contrasts associated with Andalusian flamenco. Michael Cansfield
